: For the past few months i develop this rash after i use a lipstick, there is itchiness and then my lips are inflammed . I get these white bumps all around my lips, more on my upper lip.
: I have tried using different brands , but it seems to be happening with every lipstick that i use. I never had this problem before .
: I am worried that this way i may not be able to use a lipstick and this sounds really serious to me .
: I hope somebody can give me a solution.
Try not using any for a week, then see what happens after that. I got sensitive to facial powder and after not using it at all for one week, I am fine with it now. If you are still having problems with it after not using it for a week, then you may have just become too sensitive to use it. This happened to me... but thank goodness I wasn't addicted to wearing it. I was addicted to wearing mascara and when my eyes began to burn and eyelashes fell out, I had to quit wearing it altogether (what an adjustment, I can tell you!). I spent all kinds of money on all the different types and never was able to wear it again without having a reaction. Just be aware that it is very common to have used something for a long long time, even most of your life and then become allergic to it. In these cases, your body has reached its intolerance level and begins to react. Sometimes there's other things going on that will affect our body's reactions. Taking a medication could be causing your body to go into a hyper sensitive condition. Best wishes to you.
